Craniosacral Therapy


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) assists the body to initiate its natural healing process. During a typical treatment session the client lays comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table. The craniosacral therapist uses a non-invasive light touch, usually starting at the feet, head or sacrum. Therapists develop highly attuned sensory skills through their training. The therapist uses their hands and other refined sensory receptors in their bodies to detect and help the client to heal on all levels (including physical, mental and emotional).

BCST practitioners work from a neutral space and do not interfere with the client’s own ‘inherent treatment plan’. Treatments are client-led and progress at a pace set by the individual’s own system. In other words, the client’s body will present different aspects for healing, in its own order of priority, as it is needed.

Clients usually experience a deep relaxation during and after a session.
